Even if players don't get Play of the Game in Overwatch, Blizzard was nice enough to let players see any highlights that they had with their characters. Good news is, soon enough, players will be able to save their highlights in the game with a simple click of a button.
According to Game Rant, Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan has confirmed that the developers are working on a feature that will allow players to instantly save any highlights they have in-game. Kaplan revealed the information when he was answering a question about it in the Battle Net Forums. He says that the development of the feature is making good progress, but it may be a while before the feature will actually be available in-game.
Though there are certainly ways for players to save their highlights with the use of external software, it would be incredibly convenient if the game itself gave players the option to keep any highlights. As of now, it doesn't look like this feature is high-up on the priority list since the developers are currently trying to solve a problem with cheaters in Overwatch.
Aside from the issue with the cheaters, the developers are also currently working on some character balance issues when it comes to Roadhog, Ana, D. Va and Sombra. The first three will be getting nerfed on their abilities while Sombra will be buffed to make her a more usable character for other players. Some of the adjustments include less armor for D. Va, a smaller health boost for Ana's Biotic grenade, shorter hack-time for Sombra, and hook adjustments for Roadhog.
Though saving highlights isn't something that every player has been clamoring for, it would be a nifty feature for Overwatch - what with all the people sharing their best moments in the game online. Though no announcement has been made on the release of the feature, hopefully the devs could bring it to the game this year.
Overwatch is now available to play for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
